Bryony nicked the camera, so this week I teamed up with Jamie McIntrye (our intern) and our scanner to supply images

Things

Bryony is currently manning our Pick Me Up stall, so I’ve been tasked with bringing you the weekly dose of Things (which includes super cool stuff, pretty much as always)…

Der Grief Simon Karlstetter, Leon Kirchlechner and Felix von Scheffer

The latest issue of Der Grief officially features one of the best magazine cover images of 2011. Thankfully, the rest of the magazine – which contains more photography as well as poetry and stories – is as good (and sometimes as equally amusing) as the cover in which its bound. Also, there’s an incredibly weird but kind of cool editorial letter in the magazine’s first few pages, highlighting the importance of laughter. I’d like to second that – laughter is important. I’d also like to stress how important it is to generally avoid speeding objects, and to share food sometimes.

Stuff by Hattie Stewart Hattie Stewart

We sometimes receive bumper packs through the post. The packs don’t contain one thing, but instead house many, many different things. This week’s comes courtesy of Hattie Stewart, who sent in two zines, a sticker, and a super nice business card (all varying in size). As stand-alone objects they each work – they’re all as individually important as the next – but collectively they shout out load, grab hold of your attention and very nearly don’t let go. Also, she used a Thunderbirds stamp (see picture). Cool!!!

Go Into Town & Get Some Milk Caitlin Duennebir, Rabitt Books

Published by Rabbitt Books, Go Into Town & Get Some Milk is a small and wonderfully concise collection of images by photographer Caitlin Duennebir. A highlight is the book’s front page, which instead of a photograph features a poem that is perhaps intended to shed light on the series or else is meant as a weirdly abstract but nevertheless highly intriguing introduction to the book. The poem reads:

I’m sitting on the
back porch watching
people run up and
down the hill.
They should run because
at night that is where
all the skeletons go
to dance.

Plausible Possible Alexandre Elmir, Gregoire Alix-Tabeling, Yoan Ollivier

According to their website, Plausible Possible (consisting of Alexandre Elmir, Gregoire Alix-Tabeling, Yoan Ollivier) is a “design agency that supports the development of private or public initiatives.” This featured piece of newsprint is their manifesto (of sorts) – an introduction to their philosophy and an articulate comment on what design really means.

Sci-Fi Lovers James Jessiman

London-based printmaker and illustrator James Jessiman sent us a print titled Sci-Fi Lovers or Sci-Fi Lovers 2011. It’s totally weird (it features a surreal act of marriage proposal in a psychedelic, fluorescent flower-covered room), but more importantly is completely representative of the craft and ability evident throughout all of Jessiman’s work.
